Profile of Robocop

The mood of Robocop is stylized, cynical, and witty. The plot centers around corporate crimes, superhuman powers, and androids and robots. It features dark humor. Robocop is an action and sci-fi movie. Stylistically, it is futuristic, has a Hollywood tone, and is postmodernist. In approach, it is fantastical and serious. Robocop takes place, at least partly, in an urban environment. The setting is Detroit. The movie is known for being a modern classic, critically acclaimed, and an award winner. Robocop is especially suggested for a boys' night. Note that it includes violent content.

Critics Reviews

TV Guide
A first-rate production full of nonstop action and inventive special effects but what truly makes Robocop spellbinding is a superior script.
Full review

The New York Times
Paul Verhoeven, a Dutch director ("Soldier of Orange"), doesn't let the furiously futuristic plot get in the way of the flaming explosions, shattering glass and hurtling bodies.

The acting was good enough, robocop is way better then any stupid transformer living amongst humans (they were always supposed to live amongst other transformers) because robocop is kind of human. And great bad guys.

RoboCop is a pretty cool dude. He's got a fully automatic handgun, a holster built IN to his leg, and an in-visor targeting system. He's basically the best police officer money could buy. And in this movie, RoboCop is simply awesome. There are...

Pretty good action film
Seeing Robocop today makes its SFX look pretty rediculous and amateur. But the idea and the main characterare still very cool, which makes it a quite good action film.
